Welcome to the Wild World of Natural Selection

Safaris of Character

Natural Selection offers remarkable experiences in wild, untouched places.

We are not your typical safari company. We’re about conservation first, proudly protecting Africa’s wild spaces for the future. We care about communities – the heart and soul of this wonderful continent. We connect the two with our portfolio of 24 welcoming camps and lodges across three countries.

We create safaris with character providing a variety of experiences that foster connections with both the landscapes and people of Africa. We attract the dreamers, the stargazers and the adventurers seeking an African experience with a difference.

Through tourism we – and you – support transformative community and conservation initiatives. We are driven to make a difference.

Opened 10 months ago to rave reviews, it’s no surprise that North Island Okavango has scooped up another award being voted one of Conde Nast The Hot List 2024 Winner for Best New Hotels.

This award joins last week’s award that was won for Travel + Leisure’s IT List Winner for Best New Hotels 2024. We, together with our local partners Nakwa and the Magobagoba Youth Trust, couldn’t be prouder. Quintessentially Okavango Delta, this very private camp embodies the essence of an iconic Delta experience. With a hive of year-round safari activities interwoven in a tapestry of modern African luxury design, there’s little doubt that this award merits celebration!

Our Destinations

Southern Africa is a place of contrasts. Botswana, Namibia and South Africa may share several borders, but each country has its own very distinct features and dramatic charms. From Botswana’s watery landscapes and Namibia’s sun-scorched dunes and deserts to South Africa’s pristine coastline, there really is something for everyone – and we’re here to show you the best bits.

For the last 30 years, Natural Selection’s founders have pioneered unique safari experiences across Southern Africa’s untouched places and spaces. From intimate encounters with the continent’s iconic wildlife to meaningful interactions with the people who live here, our safaris are characterful, captivating and adventurous.

The Night of Your Life

Our Camps

Location, location, location. That’s what we had in mind when we scoured southern Africa for the best wildlife viewing areas in which to establish our camps. The result? A selection of private reserves, concessions and incredible wilderness areas across Southern Africa, where animals are abundant and safari-goers are few and far between – and we think you’ll like them.
